Newton College of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic liberal arts 
college founded by the Religious of the Sacred Heart with the 
approbation and encouragement of His Excellency Richard J. 
Cushing, in Newton, Massachusetts, about five miles from the 
center of Boston. It received from the Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts in July 1946 its charter "for the teaching of the liberal 
arts and sciences . . . with authority to grant and confer all de- 
grees such as are usually conferred by colleges in the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts except degrees in medicine, and degrees 
( other than honorary doctorates ) in law". It is fully recognized 
by the educational associations, is a member of the Association 
of Collegiate Registrars, the American Council on Education, 
the Association of American Colleges, the College Entrance 
Examination Board, the National Catholic Educational Associa- 
tion, and the New England Association of Colleges and Second- 
ary Schools. It is affiliated with the Catholic University of 
America, and the B.A. and B.S. curricula are registered with the 
Regents of the State of New York. 

It is one of the many colleges of the Sacred Heart, numbering 
among its sister institutions Manhattan ville in Purchase, New 
York; Maryville in St. Louis; Barat College, Chicago; Duchesne 
College, Omaha; San Francisco College for Women; San Diego 
College for Women. Further afield in Europe are houses of study 
at Oxford, Louvain, Milan, Munich; in Asia, Sophia College of 
the University of Bombay; in Japan the International University 
in Tokyo; and colleges in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia. New- 
ton's horizons are worldwide, and century long. She gives the 
education of the Society of the Sacred Heart, an education with 
a tradition, adapted to modern needs. 

Newton is a young college, and therefore a growing institu- 
tion. At present there are more than three hundred students, 
about seventy-five per cent resident, representing not only New 
England, but many other states and several foreign countries. 


20 General Information 

Although Newton College is growing, it will not do so indefi- 
nitely, as there are limitations already set which will probably 
fix the maximum registration in years to come somewhere be- 
tween six and seven hundred students. 

A successful and happy integration of the day students into 
the life of the college has been achieved; one more evidence 
of the friendly spirit that is characteristic of the student body. 

Students are housed in five residences, varying in accommoda- 
tions for from twenty-five to two hundred students, each house 
lodging a cross section of the college. There are no "Senior" 
or "Freshman" dormitories. 

As you enter the gates, on your right is Cushing House, named 
for His Excellency, Most Reverend Richard J. Cushing, Arch- 
bishop of Boston, without whose inspiration and practical as- 
sistance Newton would not be in existence. One hundred stu- 
dents enjoy the very modern interior of this residence. 

Next to it, and more than one hundred years older than the 
1955 Cushing, is a New England residence, named for Mother 
Aloysia Hardey, one of the first American Religious of the 
Sacred Heart. Twenty-five girls enjoy the homey friendliness 
of this house. 

As you reach the circle, the beautiful Georgian home is the 
original College building, named Barat, in honor of St. Made- 
leine Sophie Barat, the foundress of the Religious of the Sacred 
Heart. Another twenty-five girls live in the charming beauty of 
this residence. 

At right angles to Barat is Stuart House, named for Mother 
Janet Erskine Stuart, an Englishwoman, and one of the Society's 
distinguished educators. It is the Administration and classroom 
building, and this is where you come to keep your appointment. 
If this has been made for a day during the academic year, you 
will meet girls coming and going, and probably a number of 
young men also, if it is afternoon. The lounges, and the snack 
bar which is near the large dining room in this building, will be 
alive with discussions and plans and bridge and TV, for Stuart 
is the daytime centre of college life. In it are the Post Office, the 

General Information 21 

Infirmary, the College Shop, as well as accommodations for fifty 
resident students. 

Removed from all this activity, down the hill, are the Library, 
reminiscent of a beautiful French chateau, and Duchesne House, 
which in its East and West wings houses two hundred girls. It 
is the newest dormitory, completed in September 1957, and 
named for Blessed Philippine Duchesne, the valiant Religious 
who made the first foundation of the Society in the Americas at 
St. Charles, Missouri, in 1818. 

If you decide to come to Newton, you will want to know what 
to bring with you for your own room. The College supplies 
beds, desks and chairs, but you will provide your own drapes, 
bed spreads, and rugs. It is better not to buy these before the 
opening of college. Disastrous color combinations result when 
roommates are not first taken into consultation. But be sure to 
come with blankets, comforter, lamp, desk set, waste basket, 
alarm clock, flash light, and hot-water bag for infirmary use. 
Sheets and pillow cases are provided and laundered by a pro- 
fessional firm according to arrangements sent to you after you 
have made your room deposit. 

Student Government was established at Newton the first year 
of its existence, in April, 1947. Its officers act as intermediaries 
between the student body and the Administration; but the en- 
tire body forms part of Student Government which is a Self- 
Government. There are few regulations but they are held to. 
Thus for instance there is no rule about lights-out. Those in 
college are supposed to be mature enough to know when to go 
to bed, and considerate enough not to inconvenience their room- 
mates, but if noise is heard outside the rooms, a member of 
Student Government imposes demerits. Students are allowed 
the use of cars if they are fortunate enough to possess them. 
It is believed that this is a great convenience which should be 
denied only when the privilege is abused. There are few rules 
about off-campus activities, but they are taken very seriously. 
A student may be off campus until 9:30 every evening without 
any special permission. On Saturday all have V.L.P. (very late 

22 General Information 

permission) until one o'clock, and on Friday night until twelve 
o'clock. V.L.P.'s and permission to be off campus overnight are 
subject to the approval of the student's parents. Liberty to go 
out every day carries with it no obligation to do so; and students 
who fail to get their work done do not remain very long in the 
college. It is best to go slowly in the beginning. Get your work 
done before you go out. 

Freshmen and Sophomores are required to participate in two 
hours of physical education a week. Emphasis is placed on the 
development of good body mechanics to improve physical ap- 
pearance and efficiency and to gain recreational skills which may 
be used during and after college. The activities included are 
archery, badminton, basketball, conditioning exercises, field 
hockey, golf, softball, tennis and volleyball. Besides the regular 
athletic program in which all the students participate, those who 
wish to do so may engage in other forms of activity, such as 
skiing, skating, riding, etc. 

The great purpose of Sacred Heart education is to develop 
a knowledge and love of God and Jesus Christ. The divinely 
appointed means to attain this end is the Church. Nothing is 
spared to make a full participation in the life of the Church 
possible to every student. Also nothing, beyond three or four 
formal occasions each year, is required; the responsibility for her 
supernatural life is left to the individual. For those who wish 
special guidance in the living and developing of the life of 
prayer, the Sodality of Children of Mary of the Sacred Heart 
offers the opportunity. Membership in this sodality is life-long 
and world-wide, with monthly meetings held in each Sacred 
Heart Convent. At college, meetings are held weekly. 

The Catholic Action Organization in the College unifies the 
apostolic activities of students. They range from working with 
the blind to participation in the Lay Apostolate, whereby 
graduates teach for a year in a mission school in or near the 
United States. 

There are a number of student organizations, some of which 
are rather closely related to academic courses, while others are 

General Information 23 

purely social and non-academic in character. The varied in- 
terests of the students find opportunities for expression in such 
groups as the Glee Club, the Dramatic Association, the Inter- 
national Relations Club, Literary Club, student newspaper. 
There is also intercourse with the students of other colleges in 
the New England area, not only in intercollegiate athletic con- 
tests but also in meetings of an academic character and in purely 
social events. 

Newton belongs to the N.S.A. (National Student Association) 
and to the N.F.C.C.S. (National Federation of Catholic College 
Students) and sends its delegates to their meetings in various 
cities of the United States. 

A blanket tax is paid by each student to cover the expenses 
of the various organizations operating in the college, as also of 
class dues. 

The Social Committee is responsible for maintaining standards 
of gracious and happy living within the College, for insuring 
that neighboring men's colleges receive invitations to dances 
on campus, and, in general, for doing everything possible to give 
every girl the opportunity to make friends and to lead a well- 
balanced social life. 

The cultural advantages of Boston are legendary, but true. 
The open rehearsals of the Boston Symphony Orchestra are 
within the power and means of all, if the Friday afternoon con- 
certs often are not. Many plays open in Boston before going 
to New York, and there are several excellent groups in the area 
seriously interested in drama as an art. The museums and 
libraries of the city enjoy international repute, and there are few 
lecturers of importance who have not speaking engagements in 
Boston. Some of these are under the auspices of one or other 
of the colleges or universities, in which case admission is free 
or fixed at a minimum. The Metropolitan Opera and the famous 
ballet companies all have their weeks in the city, and there are 
appearances of individual artists of all fields. 

The great preoccupation of a Newton College girl, despite the 
attractions just listed, is the intellectual life. She comes to col- 

24 General Information 

lege to deepen and expand her power of knowing the truth and 
loving the good, and to this task she devotes sustained effort, 
much of her time, and her best attention. Such seriousness of 
purpose underlies a profitable college experience and prepares 
for happy married or religious life. It also opens the way for 
varied and congenial work. Since 1950, the year of Newton's 
first commencement, her graduates have engaged success- 
fully in teaching, social work, merchandising, advertising, 
journalism, communications, in the study of law and medicine, 
in scientific research, in advanced study in the liberal and fine 
arts. They have found that the preparation received at Newton 
College of the Sacred Heart has been at least adequate, and 
often distinguished.

26 Admission 


An applicant for advanced standing must present: 

1. An official transcript of all work done at each secondary- 
school and college attended. 

2. Evidence of ability to meet the regular requirements for 
admission to the college as well as the requirements for 
admission to advanced standing. 

A student may be tentatively admitted to advanced standing 
at the beginning of either semester but not after the first semes- 
ter of Junior Year. 

Terms of admission are conditioned by the following stipula- 

(a) No credit will be given for a course with a grade of less 
than C. 

(b) All credit accepted must represent work which is ap- 
plicable to the current curriculum of the college. 

(c) The work for which credit is accepted must be substan- 
tially equivalent in quality and quantity to that for which 
it is offered as a substitute. 


The College reserves the right of asking the withdrawal of any 
student whose scholarship is not satisfactory or who is not in 
accord with the standards required by the College. 


The Administration Scholarships 

The Administration of Newton College of the Sacred Heart 
gives scholarships carrying financial aid ranging in value from 
$800 to $6800 for four years. These scholarships are awarded 
on a competitive basis. 

The Duchesne Scholarships 

In 1948, the members of the Duchesne Teachers' Guild ex- 
pressed their loyalty to the Society of the Sacred Heart and then- 
support of Newton College by the establishment of a four-year 
partial scholarship for day students. In 1953 it was renewed. 

In 1955, the Duchesne Teachers' Guild donated another 
scholarship, a full one for a day student for four years. 

The Janet Stuart Scholarship 

The Janet Stuart Guild offers scholars' aid of $750 yearly. 

The Massachusetts Catholic Woman's Guild Scholarship 

The Massachusetts Catholic Woman's Guild offers a scholar- 
ship of $250 a year to be open to a day student, the daughter or 
sister of a member of the Guild. If no such applicant qualifies 
academically it may be assigned to any qualified candidate for 
a scholarship. 

The Marian Scholarship 

A partial scholarship for a day student, called The Marian 
Scholarship, is awarded yearly by the Administration. 

The Mater Admirabilis Scholarship 

The gift of $500 of an Alumna of Eden Hall goes under the 
name of the Mater Admirabilis Scholarship towards scholars' aid 
offered yearly to one student. 


28 Scholarships 

The Michael E. Sweeney Scholarship 

The scholars' aid offered by Mr. and Mrs. Michael E. Sweeney 
is awarded yearly to a day student. 

The Mother Eleanor S. Kenny Scholarship 

In honor of the first president of the college, the Administra- 
tion of Newton College of the Sacred Heart offers a full resi- 
dence and tuition scholarship each year to the highest ranking 
student from among the scholarship applicants from the Con- 
vents of the Sacred Heart of the Washington Vicariate. 

The Newton College Alumnae Scholarship 

The Alumnae Association of Newton College of the Sacred 
Heart has offered partial scholars' aid of $700, which is awarded 

The Gael Coakley Memorial Scholarship Fund 

In memory of her husband, Gael Coakley, Dorothy McLough- 
lin Coakley, an Alumna of the Convents of the Sacred Heart, 
Rochester and Manhattanville, has inaugurated an endowment 
fund known as The Gael Coakley Memorial Scholarship Fund. 
The first donations have been given in the names of Gael Coak- 
ley, Jr., Barbara Coakley Lennon, and Mary Hayes Coakley. 

Grant-in- Aid 

Newton College offers a grant-in-aid program by which a stu- 
dent who needs financial aid and does not hold a scholarship can 
receive a reduction in tuition and pay the equivalent of this 
reduction by working for the College at the rate of seventy-five 
cents an hour. No student is allowed to work more than ten 
hours a week while College is in session. Clerical work, switch- 
board service and library service, and other occupations of this 
type are assigned by the Administration. A contract between the 

Scholarships 29 

College and the student specifies the number of hours of work 
to be done per year. 

Honors at Entrance 

The Administration awards Honors at Entrance to the highest- 
ranking members of the incoming Freshman Class. They are 
given the privilege of being on the Deans List during their first 
semester in college. 



All students must take the required courses listed on p. 34. 
They must also show by examination the ability to translate 
correctly into English from a foreign language. 


Each student elects a major field of study and takes at least 
ten courses in it. Majors are offered in the following subjects: 
art, biology, chemistry, economics, elementary education and 
psychology, English, French, history, mathematics, philosophy, 
pre-medical studies, sociology, Spanish. Majors in Italian and 
classical languages will be offered whenever there is sufficient 
demand for them. 

Students choosing elementary education and psychology as a 
major field must elect ten courses in some other field of study. 
Students who wish to prepare for teaching in secondary schools 
are advised to plan their programs with the advice of both the 
professors in their major field of study and those in the Educa- 
tion Department. 


Apart from required courses and courses in the major field, 
the student must take elective courses sufficient to bring her total 
credits to 128. The elective courses should be chosen with the 
advice of the professors in the student's major field. 


An essay of approximately 6,000 words must be written on 
some aspect of a subject chosen from the field of concentration, 
showing ability to consult sources and organize the matter so 
obtained. A publication in a reputable off-campus magazine 
may, with the Deans approval, be substituted for the Senior 


Requirements for Degree 31 


This examination is given at the end of the senior year in 
order to evaluate the student's knowledge in her field of con- 
centration, not by considering specific course content, but by 
testing her grasp in the field as a whole. The student is expected 
to widen and deepen her knowledge by independent reading 
in preparation for this examination. 


The standing of a student is determined by her class work 
and by her achievement in the mid-year and final examinations. 
The marking system is as follows: 

A+ = 99, 98, 97 % ) „ „ . __ ,. , 

A =96, 95, 94 ( Excellent, outstandingly 

A— = 93, 92, 91, 90 

fine work 

B+ = 89, 88, 87 \ 

B = 86, 85, 84 I Very good work 

B— = 83, 82, 81, 80 ) 

C+ = 79, 78, 77 \ 

C = 76, 75, 74 I Good adequate work 

C— = 73, 72, 71, 70 ) 

D+ = 69, 68, 67 ) 

D = 66, 65, 64 I Passing work 

D— = 63, 62, 61, 60 ) 

F = Below 60 Failure 

A grade of C is required in any course that is to fulfill the 
requirements in the major field. 

Students are required to maintain a minimum scholastic aver- 
age of C — . A student who fails to do this is automatically in 
poor scholastic standing and may be dropped from the college. 

Students on the Dean's List are those who during the previous 
semester have maintained a scholastic average of B+. Honor 

32 Academic Standards 

students are those who during the previous semester have main- 
tained a scholastic average of A — or more. 


Students are expected to attend all their scheduled college 
classes and not to absent themselves without sufficient reason. 
However, as emergencies inevitably arise during the course of 
a college semester, and to allow a certain freedom where these 
are concerned, Freshmen are allowed six self-excused absences 
a semester; Sophomores are allowed eight self-excused absences 
a semester; Juniors, ten; Seniors, twelve. Students on the Dean's 
List are entitled to as many self -excused absences as they carry 
hours of class a week, but during a term they may not excuse 
themselves from the same class more times than that class meets 
in a week. Honor students are entitled to an unlimited number 
of self-excused absences from class. Students in poor scholastic 
standing are entitled to no self-excused absences. 

Self-excused absences do not relieve the student from respon- 
sibility for work required while she was absent, nor do they give 
her credit for a quiz that she may have missed. Absence from 
the last class before a vacation or the first class after a vacation 
counts as five unexcused absences. 


An examination period occurs at the end of each semester. 
Unexcused absence from an examination is counted as a failure 
in the course. Absence from an examination is excused only for 
illness or a serious emergency. 


The college confers honors at graduation upon students who 
have maintained a high average of scholastic excellence during 
their entire course. The senior essay and the comprehensive 
examinations taken together count as a term's work whose result 
added to that of the eight terms is divided by nine. The scholas-

Academic Standards 33 

tic average required for a degree cum laude is 87-91%; for magna 
cum laude, 92-95%; for summa cum laude, 96% and over. These 
honors are based entirely upon scholarship. For membership in 
honor societies, leadership also will be taken into consideration. 


Each term there will be a lecture by an authority on the Holy 
Scriptures which the faculty and the entire student body will 
attend. These lectures will be given on the Thursday nearest the 
feast of St. Jerome, September 30, and that nearest the feast of 
St. Gregory, March 12. 


The feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, March 7, is celebrated by 
a solemn High Mass in the Dominican rite, and by a lecture 
given by a distinguished Thomist. 


Credit is given for work of at least C grade done at summer 
sessions of approved institutions. Students must have the per- 
mission of the Dean before registering for summer courses. Six 
points of credit, equivalent to six semester hours, is the maxi- 
mum granted in a summer session of six weeks. 


Courses with a double number, for example Art 1-2, extend 
through two semesters. Odd-numbered courses are given in the 
first semester; even-numbered courses in the second. The num- 
ber in parentheses after the title of the course indicates the 
number of semester hours of credit.
